Although clearly not Schulz to the trained eye of a PEANUTS fan, writer/artist Dale Hale's officially sanctioned take on Good Ol' Charlie Brown from Dell's PEANUTS comic book is most certainly an enjoyable facsimile thereof. Although oddly never as popular as the DENNIS THE MENACE comics that began in the previous decade, the PEANUTS comic book likewise had the idea to open up the stories to more than just the typical newspaper misadventures and continuity. It should have worked. These are quite charming comics. Hale went on to write for animation including work for DISNEY'S DUCK TALES and TINY TOON ADVENTURES.
